    And at the end of the week- long festival of Gratitude, a pubescent young man was publicly garroted and his body slipped into a nearby bog thus ensuring the village of prosperity and a bountiful harvest for the next year.

    I think it’s whole Slavic tradition.

  6. Russiafan says:

    Some of the costumes like just like Japanese a winter festival in Akita, Japan. Indeed, the resemblance is striking

    It’s not a slavic tradition. It’t a ancient romanian tradition and the region must be Bassarabia (Moldova) or North Bucovina – Ucraina.

    As usualfor this site, someone forgot to clearly write that photos are from Ukraine. Ukraine is European independent state, older and more ancient that Asiatic state called Russia.
